We've been having some hard days at the hospital. The wards have been busy, and there have been a number of really sick people, both adults and kids. The challenges, similarly seen at just about every hospital in the region, are many: not enough staff, medication shortages, not enough diagnostic tests, trouble getting specialists to come when they say they will. We're doing a pretty good job, all things considered. The hospital has made some amazing strides in the last one and a half years. And the attitude of the staff is overall positive, which is a big difference from a lot of African government hospitals I've worked in. As tired and frustrated as we all get sometimes, I feel like this hospital is doing better and better, and the community seems to be benefitting.
